# How do you solve \frac { 2} { 3} t + \frac { 1} { 5} = 3?

Oct 19, 2017

$t = \frac{21}{5}$ or $4.2$

#### Explanation:

Subtract both sides of the equation by $\frac{1}{5}$ so you can solve for $t$.

$\frac{2}{3} t = 3 - \frac{1}{5}$

$\frac{2}{3} t = \frac{14}{5}$

Multiply both sides by $3$ so you get rid of it as a denominator.

$2 t = \frac{42}{5}$

Solve for $t$ by dividing both sides of the equation by $2$.

$\therefore t = \frac{21}{5}$ or $4.2$
